If you are on stock tires, you can do it any time. If you have decent rubber on the car, then do it right away to save them from wearing in a bad way. If you still have the OEM tires, you have my sympathy.

yeah im still rolling on the OEM crap rubbers. i plan on buying some rims + tires in the near future (just gotta decide what kind, size, offset, etc), so i figure my OEMs will hold out until then.

h-techs huh? should have just gotten the TRD springs and have them covered under warranty. the h-techs dont have that aggressive of a drop to them. oh, and get a alignment before they settle, cause it usually takes a good 1-3k miles to settle.

Would you say that the only problem with not getting the alignment right away is increased wear on the tires, or could it F up anything else?

You will wear your tires unevenly, so yes.
Well...I am running the craptastic OEMs, so the sooner they wear out, the better!

That's why I qualified my comment. If you are on good tires, do it right away. If you are on RE92's, no hurry, it just gives you a good excuse to get the car on decent rubber sooner.

TRD springs won't drop that far. You'll need different springs.
